Forward Theo Thrun of the Kenai River Brown Bears was named the Bauer Midwest Division Star of the Week on Monday by the North American Hockey League.
Thrun, 18, scored the game-winner in both games as the Bears swept the Northeast (Massachusetts) Generals on Friday and Saturday. Friday, the 5-foot-11, 165-pounder scored two goals, including the decisive strike in overtime.
Saturday, the native of Grand Rapids, Michigan, had another game-winner as the Bears came back from a 3-0 deficit to win 5-3. He now has 20 points in 17 games.
“Theo’s played very well for us this past weekend and has played well all season,” Brown Bears head coach Kevin Murdock said in a released statement. “Theo’s consistency and daily work ethic is really paying off for him. He has a knack for putting himself in a position to score goals and it’s great to see him rewarded for his efforts.”
